(Love Inspired Suspense)
by Jessica R. Patch
Minutes into FBI profiler Bryn Eastman's first case since a near-fatal shooting, a brazen serial killer sets his sights on her next. Now her life—and career—is in the hands of her new partner, Detective Eric Hale, the man she once loved and lost. Racked with nightmares of the shooting and regrets for the tragedy that tore her and Eric apart, Bryn doesn't want Eric to discover the secrets she carries—but she needs him. Seeing Bryn brings back memories Eric can't control. Memories of a once-in-a-lifetime love. But the tough detective knows their only path to a second chance goes straight through a relentless killer…one who won't quit until he counts Bryn as his fifth victim.
A killer is only a breath away...
OK, so I read all of the Love Inspired Suspense books that I can get my hands on, but I have to say that Protective Duty is now one of my favorites and one of the best I've read this year. Jessica R. Patch has woven a truly chilling and spine-tingling tale of romantic suspense. And there's a dog. Yeah, as a pet-lover you totally have me as soon as a dog or cat makes an appearance. Of, course, I was actually hooked before then. The story was so engrossing that I picked up my Kindle in the late afternoon and finished by early evening. I just couldn't seem to put it down, I HAD to know if my guess about the killer's identity was correct. Romantic suspense is my favorite genre and I am definitely a fan of Jessica R. Patch's exciting stories, of which Protective Duty is an excellent example.
